Holidays! By the terminate of April, things are pretty tranquility inwards the dive shop, in addition to thus I took a vacation starting Apr 29th, allowing nearly 10 days amongst the household unit of measurement earlier the kids went dorsum to schoolhouse later on the "summer" intermission (Thai schools receive got summertime sensibly from March - May which is the hottest fourth dimension of year). We decided to halt inwards the Khao Sok expanse for a black on the means to Chumphon. The chosen accommodation was the Cliff in addition to River Jungle Resort, which had been recommended past times friends. Looked corking on the website, but don't they always?... For me, a personal recommendation is far to a greater extent than important.

The receive from Phuket took to a greater extent than or less 2½ hours via Khao Lak. I one-half idea of stopping inwards Khao Lak to facial expression at the boats that had been carried inland past times the tsunami. Saw the famous constabulary boat from the nous road. But really, I don't desire to endure a "tsunami tourist". Have written nearly my seismic sea wave thoughts several times on this blog, most recently inwards Dec 2008. Just North of Khao Lak, in that location is the minor town of Takua Pa. We somehow managed a incorrect plow in addition to establish out that close Takua Pa is a beautiful looking erstwhile town called Sri Takua Pa. Like erstwhile Phuket, but amongst no cars. I desire to teach dorsum in addition to facial expression to a greater extent than or less some day. From Takua Pa to the Cliff in addition to River is alone to a greater extent than or less 1 hours drive, although nosotros stopped a yoke of times for the views. It's all hills in addition to valleys to a greater extent than or less hither in addition to really rural. The nous entrance to the Khao Sok National Park is on the North side of the road, in addition to the entrance to the Cliff in addition to River is on the South side to a greater extent than or less 10km later on the commons entrance.

Before proverb anything else, I'll state this - we'll endure back. Location, WoW! Well, depository fiscal establishment fit some of the photos below. Nice people... in addition to having been in that location once, nosotros know precisely what room numbers nosotros desire side past times side fourth dimension :) No, non going to scream that here. We checked inwards later on midday, in addition to were given a "River" room amongst an extra bed. The room was quite a walk from reception. I could commons the automobile close the restaurant, also past times the river, but yet a fleck of a hike to behave bags. The room was decent, perhaps a fleck "jungly", a balcony exterior past times a minor stream. Aircon, fridge. There was a TV, non sure why, could alone teach a few Thai channels. We did non purpose it. And a corking outdoor shower for that truthful jungle experience. Used it quite a few times - this is a HOT fourth dimension of yr here!

The eating topographic point is great, past times the river, inwards the jungle, I liked the wooden furniture, nutrient was skillful (not super cheap, remove heed you), beer was mutual coldness :) We had tiffin in that location later on checking in. The curry my married adult woman ordered (Gaeng Phet Gai) was superb.

Afternoon was in addition to thus darn hot - nosotros all chilled inwards our aircon room for a spell earlier hitting the pool. What a corking pool. Not large - nosotros were of shape staying at the hotel out of high season. The alone people using the puddle other than us were two High German couples.. I vowed to vanquish them to the best seats side past times side morning... If the resort was full, that puddle mightiness endure rather crowded. Sometimes, I create similar the depression flavour :)

Pool has a sentiment of the huge cliff that towers 1000+ feet over the resort, has a jacuzzi, a shaded sala in addition to chairs to hang your towel at 7am to vanquish the Germans :) The kids loved it correct away. Now, Khao Sok has all sort of activities similar rafting, canoeing, hiking, elephant trekking.. perhaps side past times side fourth dimension we'll create a canoe trip on the river. This niggling trip was all nearly getting a experience for the place. We stayed inwards the puddle for a yoke of hours.

We did exit of the hotel for a yoke of hours, drove dorsum to the nous national commons entrance inwards the tardily afternoon. Lots of minor hotels in that location in addition to jungle huts in addition to minor restaurants where nosotros ate, equally the kids said they were starving. I recall the threat of a jungle walk made them hungry! From the entrance in that location are hiking trails of 5km or more. You tin pitch a tent inwards this expanse too, nosotros saw some people doing that. There are some bathrooms provided past times the national park. We did non run across much, equally really, if yous desire to run across Khao Sok, yous demand to hike or create a boat trip.

On the means dorsum to Cliff in addition to River nosotros checked out some other identify to remain called Khao Sok Treehouse Resort. Very jungly! We climbed steps in addition to crossed walkways to a room inwards the trees. The room was amazing, a huge double bed, a tent for the kids, wireless internet, aircon, satellite TV, a wonderful treetop bathroom.. they offered us the room for 2500 Baht. The website has prices upward to over 5000 Baht. We did recall nearly staying a black on the means home, sure as shooting a unique identify - had a puddle besides on the jungle floor.

The black at Cliff in addition to River was really peaceful, insect noises, nosotros slept really well. I had to grab a fair size "tookay" lizard inwards our room, equally my married adult woman said it mightiness seize amongst teeth us. I planned to wake early on - we'd been told the identify looked corking amongst the early on morning time mists over the mountains. I did wake earlier the residue of the household unit of measurement in addition to went on a wander to a greater extent than or less the hotel grounds. The mists covered the cliffs, the alone people awake at 7am were some staff cleaning the pool.

Waking upward early on is non my favourite affair to do, but sometimes an early on morning time is worthwhile. I watched equally the mountains appeared in addition to disappeared inwards the depression clouds, giving sneak previews of their total power...

I went to wake upward the residue of the household unit of measurement for breakfast.

I am sure hikes would too, but our kids truly don't desire to teach trekking in addition to I don't excogitation to endure "Outdoor Dad" - hi kids, let's create a 10 mile mount hike! We create excogitation some other trip on the lake/reservoir sometime in addition to for sure volition endure dorsum at Cliff in addition to River, likely inwards September when nosotros receive got some to a greater extent than schoolhouse holidays in addition to my parents are visiting from the UK.
